Oddly, this collection ends with the current Foreign Policy cover showing Karl Marx, advertising their story, "Thoroughly Modern Marx".
The economic crisis has spawned a resurgence of interest in Karl Marx. Worldwide sales of Das Kapital have shot up (one lone German publisher sold thousands of copies in 2008, compared with 100 the year before), a measure of a crisis so broad in scope and devastation that it has global capitalism—and its high priests—in an ideological tailspin.No mention of the spike in sales of Atlas Shrugged.
